We are a group of dynamic seniors (aged 50 and over, but getting younger) and we are building a cohousing community in Greater Montreal (we are looking at properties in communities on the south shore of the St-Lawrence, to be more specific).
While our group will be for the 50+ age-bracket, our outlook is young and community- oriented. We will be reaching out to the surrounding community and getting involved with younger generations and families. We will not be a seniors’ ghetto.
Our project will likely be a building of 40 units, perhaps more, situated near urban services. The design will be environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient. We will have gardens, fruit trees and a vegetable garden, built on the principles of permaculture. Like other cohousing groups, we will have an active common space with kitchen, living room, woodworking shop, garden house, etc.
Our group is primarily French-speaking, and our meetings are conducted in French, but anglophones are more than welcome. We are a very friendly, happy bunch!
